I'm sure the number crunchers at the home video divisions of Warner, Universal, etc ..., know that not every hardcore type is on board with dvd-mod (or bluray-mod). All that matters is "enough" hardcore folks are willing to buy dvd-mod releases at premium prices. (ie. The mod abstainers are not likely coming back).Well... they don't have all the numbers because they don't ask "hardcore collectors." I consider myself in that group based on the size of the collection and number of titles I purchase on a regular basis. I very rarely purchase MOD releases. IIRC I have 3 out of a collection of over 550 *series* which means *thousands* of seasons. The main reason I don't own more is that I refuse to pay the exorbitant price asked for these type of releases.
I wouldn't be surprised if the first several batches of tv on dvd-mod releases almost a decade ago, were basically "trial balloons" to see what fraction of folks were willing to buy dvd-mod. Further tv on dvd-mod releases of shows which started off originally as wide mass market pressed dvd discs, likely provided more data of the % dropoff when the show went dvd-mod only.
